Seduction and Snacks (Chocolate Lovers #1)
When Carter, the one-night-stand from her past that changed her life forever, shows up in her hometown bar without any recoll...more
Seduction and Snacks is one of - if not the - funniest book I’ve ever read. It’s an irreverent look at single parenting, dating, finding true love and… well, it’s a story about so much!
Claire and Carter are a great couple. I loved that there was NOT a bunch of drama… loved that Carter took on his role of father without hesitation, and those ‘becoming a parent’ moments were some of the funniest scenes ever written. Gavin is a precocious, too-smart-for-his-own-good four year old with a potty mouth...more
Imagine holding on to your virginity for 20 years only to loose it in a drunken, one-night-stand to a hot, but nameless guy at a fraternity party. Yes, lots of things suck about that previous statement, but then top it off with the biggest suck factor of all – Mr. Nameless apparently had some super-sperm that somehow escaped confines of the condom. Yes...more
★★★★ 4 memorable and funny-as-hell STARS.
My main reaction while reading this book was pretty much this:
I was either laughing out loud or shocked at something one of the characters said and that made me embarrased in their place for actually saying what they did out loud.
Random thoughts and highlights:
❥ My favorite character of the book was by far Gavin!! He's probably the CUTEST, FUNNIEST four year old ever. Some pf the things he did and said were just too cute and he never failed to
This book started out hilarious and I was having a blast reading it until I wasn't. It stopped being funny and started to become annoying. Very annoying, over-the-top, and ridiculous. Just too much! For me, this is one of those books that tries too hard to be funny and ends up failing because of it. And, boy, was it crude! Not a fun combination for me!
I believe whether or not this book works for a reader depends solely on what one considers humorous. For those wondering if this book's humor w...more
No book has EVER made me laugh this hard. I giggled, squeed, snorted, and cried with laughter to the point where I’d have to stop reading in order to catch my breath!! PURE FUN!
But the best part was that it wasn’t just a funny story – it had everything! It was oh-so-swoony with some seriously omg-fan-yourself H.O.T and steamy bedroom scenes and an absolutely heart-meltingly sweet and beautiful story about a family f...more
The unfiltered hilarity of this book made me laugh and orgasm at the same time. Can you laugh yourself into an orgasm?? Never in my life have I been so damn proud to have a vagina! I normally don't like vagina; it can be very territorial. When vagina...vaginas...vagini? When vagini get around each other, the pussy claws come out and everything becomes one big competition. It's like the f**king whoo-ha olympics; every twat for themselves. But deep down inside we'...more
3.5 stars. In summary, Claire and Carter met five-years earlier and had a drunken one-night stand that left her pregnant and neither of them knowing how to find the other. Five years later, a chance meeting brings these two together again.
This was a funny romance story, and I get why people are recommending it left and right, but it had way too much snarky, naughty, over-the-top 'bumper sticker' type humor for me. It was just toooo m...more
DNF for now.
I have to be in the right mood for this humor.
Just a little random example:
"I was going to stand next to every single woman in labor and every time a nurse or a doctor or hell, even the woman's husband said something stupid like, 'Just breathe through the pain,' it would be my job to squeeze the living fuck out of their reproductive organs until they were curled up in the fetal position asking for their mommies and I'd say, "Just breathe through the...more
At one point, I had tears streaming down my face from laughing so hard!!
5 AMAZING STARS!!!!!!!!
Short Summary: Claire is a college student who decides to lose her virginity at a frat party, but consequently ends up getting knocked up by Carter aka the one night stand. The crazy thing is Claire and Carter never exchanged names after Claire sneaks out the next morning. They never see each other again until 5 years later when Carter sho...more
Seduction and Snacks was flipping hilarious and sexy as hell!
Have you ever had an instant connection and attraction to someone? You get each other jokes, have the same taste in movies and music, and are enthralled by their stories? We’ll that’s what Claire and Carter have when they meet five years ago at a college frat party. Claire decides from this connection that Carter would be the perfect guy to take her V-card and then she can move on and immerse herself in college again. Yes, Carter is dr...more
Oh. My. God! I’m not quite sure I know what to say…
This book was amazing! I don’t recall a time that I laughed so much while reading a book! I know there have been times, I just can’t think of any.
When I first saw this book around GR, I dismissed it due to its (slightly) cheesy cover. Then a friend sent me the link to the book and told me to check it out (thanks Alyssa!), so I did. I was excited to read it. I love stories where couples were separated and find each other again. Then I saw the mi...more

This was a disappointing “DNF” for me. I was almost finished, had about 30 pages to go, but it was just too absurd to keep me any longer and I knew I had lost all patience. I was ready to scrap it about 30 pages in, but then it...more
I am in love. Yes, I have a total girl crush on Tara Sivec. Move over Christian Grey, I’m switching teams. I am ready to move near Tara and stalk her so I can be her best friend (and maybe lick her face a little. I love her that much). Or maybe it’s the characters she wrote I want to hang with. Or are they one in the same?
Seduction and Snacks by Tara Sivec is hands down my new favorite book. I laughed so much during this book scary t...more
To sum it up: Claire is a twenty-something, single mom that grudgingly helps her best friend sell sex toys while she attempts to make enough money to start her own business to give her foul-mouthed, but extremely loveable (when he's asleep) toddler a better life.
When Carter, the one-night-stand from her past that changed her life forever, shows up in her hometown bar without any recollection of her besides her unique chocolate scent, Claire will make i...more
Seduction and Snacks by Tara Sivec was pure awesome! Never, and I repeat, NEVER has a book made me laugh this hard. I made the mistake of bringing my Kindle with me to a Starbucks and I started reading this book there. I seriously must have looked like a mad woman in desperate need of therapy. I was laughing so hard, and I...more
It was super funny, the sarcasm, the wit of all the characters.. Each and every character was amazing and hilarious :P
Gavin is one little punky kid :P I want a crazy ass kid like him.. Gosh reading him talk such foul language was super funny, had an great laugh while reading this book..

Warning: You'll laugh until you cry!!!
To say my weekend was bad, is an understatement. Problems at work and by Saturday afternoon I was slightly depressed... And then I picked this book!! Thank GOD and thank you Tara Sivec!
Hilarious and witty, addictive and funny, this book grabs you and smacks you down. It's offensive and opinionated, you can't help but agree at some points and at others...
The first chapter is the...more

Oh my god, this is a hilarious book, I pretty much spent the whole book doing this
I'm sure I looked insane to anyone who saw me reading. It was just so funny, like everything single line was funny. It's amazing. This author's voice is a work of comedic art. And the best part is, that even with all the funny stuff, other emotions still come through loud and clear. So you get all the serious life stuff, but wrapped up in a humorous package. Claire is a strong lead, I love...more
'Seduction and Snacks' is in a league all its own. I have never ever read a book that is this funny ! And not 'fluffy-fun' funny, but 'hell yeah!' no holds barred funny!
Written completely in 1st person (from both Claire and Carter's POV), this is a hilarious story about a 20-year old college student who, out to lose her dastardly virginity, chooses a handsome, quirky "frat" boy at a party and gives it (unbeknownst) to him - his reaction to said event (after the fact) was m...more

Let me tell you one thing, this book is hilarious! After a week I had it was exactly what I needed to relax, let my hair down and laugh my ass off! I really did not except to enjoy it so much, Tara Sivec is one witty writer with a natural sense of humor. Seduction and Snacks is the funniest book I've read so far, I have cried with laughter all day yesterday, my poor kids didn't know what was happening, they kept asking 'Mommy are you choking?' and the only reply I could menage was to shake my h...more
Holy crapola! This has to be the funniest book I've EVER read. It's like a drunk comedian got on a roll and couldn't shut his/her mouth.
Let me say that if you don't like dirty jokes, profanity, explicit sexual references and the like, YOU WILL NOT LIKE THIS BOOK!
On the flip side, if these things don't ruffle you, and you have a pretty good sense of humor and can see this for the slapstick satire it is, then you will snort and chuckl...more
So, while reading this book I did a lot of this
And a whole lotta this
Oh my god this book! This book was crude, vulgar, and funny as all hell! This is the best kind of pick-me-up read and definitely one of the funniest books I've ever read.
Claire and Carter were adorable and Gavin -the four year old with an oh so colorful vocabulary- was HILARIOUS.
I loved this book and can’t wait to read more from the genius that is Tara Sivec!
Absolutely a joy to read! Super funny, great characters, nice amount of steam and a foul mouthed kid! What more could you ask for? I loved this book even though my husband thought I had lost my mind cause I was giggling so much while reading it. I would definitely read more by this author.
I don't care that this was written originally as a Twilight fanfic and that people are pissed that the author pulled her stories from the free domain to publish them (seriously, all of you that gave the author one star for doing that NEED TO GROW UP!!! Why don't y'all just go lay that shit on the doorstep of EL James, considering that Fifty Shades was also originally written as a Twilight fanfic?!), people...more
I FUCKING LOVE THIS BOOK!!! I don't think I have ever , like in my life ever, laughed so hard! And I know for certain I have never had to take so many bathroom breaks from laughing so hard I almost peed my pants from a book! I know, tmi but whatever this is some fucking funny shit!!! I don't even know where to start... I read some of the other reviews for this and I can already tell they will be way more eloquent than mine, but no matter, go r...more
